She was my son Vincent’s friend… a stray vagabond dog found wandering by the road in 2007. We don’t know how old she was, but she had gotten pretty messed up in the last year or so — she was more and more confused, her legs would let go, she was losing weight, and she no doubt suffered in silence. So yeah, it was time for her to go.
I held her in my arms while Vincent drove us to the vet’s. My son and I were together, caressing her, when she got her injection. She went softly… peacefully.
Tonight, my son Vincent posted this video on Facebook… with the following message (translated from French):
“Back in the days, my mom had music blasting all through the house, at all times… mostly Springsteen. I believe that it’s thanks to her if I have this great love for music. This one’s for you, Mom… luv you xxx”
(I’m on Fire — Bruce Springsteen)
Am I a lucky mom or what?!!!
P.S. : Here’s Vincent singing Hunger Strike by Temple of the Dog.
